Have your say

LITTLE Abbie Paterson is on the search for her Portsmouth pen-friend after losing contact with her.

The ten-year-old, who lives in Airdrie in Scotland, met a friend called Briony while on holiday with her family in Disneyland Paris in April.

She says Briony was from Portsmouth and the families exchanged addresses – but the piece of paper has since vanished.

They were staying at the Hotel Santa Fe.

Her mum Heather said: ‘We’ve searched through everything but cannot find her address. They really clicked.’

If you are Briony, or know of her, email Heather Paterson at or call 01236 440244.
